Parkmore Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Parkmore neighborhood on the northwest side of Tucson splits into two parts. Tandem cul-de-sacs make up the 85705 ZIP code. Situated near the Interstate 10, just outside the Catalina Foothills, this well-kept neighborhood has rugged Mount Kimball as a backdrop.
The Parkmore neighborhood boundary on the north ends at West Wetmore Road, with the back of the properties on the east extending to North Hansa Place. All the houses on the south side of West La Osa Street form the southern boundary. The point at which they meet North Jay Avenue forms the western boundary. An alley separates the two halves of the neighborhood.
The neighborhood has the advantage being situated among a number of golf courses, shopping plazas, and recreation areas. Among them are the El Conquistador Country Club to the north and the Oracle Ridge Shopping Plaza and the Tucson Mall to the east. The Silverbell Golf Course is located to the south of the neighborhood, while the Sweetwater Wetlands Park is to the west.
The ranch-style homes of the Parkmore community fit in with the breathtaking view of the mountains available to residents. These durable homes were built in the late 1950s, They feature a combination of water-conserving desert landscaping and green grass. Many homes take advantage of shade trees to help keep them cool in the summer. There is also a refreshing line of desert brush.
The Parkmore neighborhood is pedestrian-friendly, with sidewalks that trace the path of the homes back to the main roads. There are no bike lanes before the major streets, but the residential streets are wide enough to safely share. There are no streets that connect the north to the south part of the neighborhood, which prevents any through traffic.
